Reimagining Mission & Learning in Community

We see learning as mission. Not only as mission of the Learning Network, but learning as a way of being missional. Sound learning practices will help to create and build communities which have their focus on mission. A good leader is also a good learner--a learner who can learn together with others.

In this course you will learn how to lead a multi-voiced community of learning by community formation and teamwork. We start with the first steps of creating a team. You will learn the essential adult learning skills and practices based on ‘learning-by-doing’. We will work on how to integrate the practical theological cycle in your mission and ministry; and you will develop practices of discernment, integration and credibility so that learning can be integrated, evaluated and developed. In this way a firm foundation for the next courses is laid out, so that you are able to train others in your own context in the themes of the next courses.

The main aims of this course are:

  • Apply adult teaching/learning skills and practices within your training and context by learning- in-doing.

  • Learn how to integrate the practical theological spiral in you mission or ministry context.

  • Develop practices of discernment, integration and credibility in a grounded, multi-voiced

    community of learning by learning together in different contexts.

  • Lead a grounded, multi-voiced community of learning by community formation and teamwork.
